Comcast Business is investing more than $13 million in a major expansion of its fiber-based network throughout Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey. Capable of delivering up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of network capacity, the fiber optic Ethernet network expansion will support advanced services and give the company the ability to bring new customers, ranging from small and medium-sized organizations to large enterprises, online more quickly.
As part of the project, more than 120 miles of new fiber optic cable will be deployed across areas such as the Center City District in Philadelphia; King of Prussia, Pennsylvania; Mount Laurel, Princeton, Somerset and South Plainfield, New Jersey; and Wilmington, Delaware.
“As demand for our high-performance Ethernet offerings continues to soar, Comcast Business recognizes the need to respond quickly to new businesses to provide scalable solutions that can meet demand as they grow,” said David Dombroski, regional vice president for Comcast Business. “Companies of all sizes can meet their capacity needs now and prepare for future requirements as well, all while benefitting from our advanced telecommunications services. Not only does this help organizations meet customer needs and drive growth, but it helps boost the local economy as well.”
This Ethernet expansion will provide businesses with access to a comprehensive portfolio of multi-Gigabit Ethernet options that will help meet the day-to-day demands of organizations requiring large amounts of bandwidth, looking to link multiple sites or branch locations, or planning to connect their offices to a third-party data center. Services offered include:
- Ethernet Private Line: Point-to-point connectivity between two customer sites for bandwidth-intensive applications.
- Ethernet Virtual Private Line: Point-to-multipoint connection to enable customers to tailor bandwidth, performance characteristics and cost.
- Ethernet Network Service: Multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity to connect organizations with high-bandwidth requirements and multiple locations across Comcast’s network.
- Ethernet Dedicated Internet: Continuous, high-bandwidth connectivity between customers’ LANs and the public internet.
